February is the month of Valentine’s Day, so I’m recommending apps that help me get ready for the big day—from feeling secure when shopping for gifts online to receiving reminders for all the tasks I need to complete. This month’s recommended apps help smartphone users remember strong, secure passwords and keep their busy lives organized and on-time, so they can spend more time with loved ones.
Do you use the same password for everything? Is it something easy to remember like “password” or your pet’s name? Weak passwords can make your private information more susceptible to hacking. It’s risky to use the same password for every website because a security compromise at one site could leave you vulnerable with other sites you use. Creating and remembering long, complex passwords is hard. That’s why I recommend using the 1Password app.
1Password is a simple, secure app that creates strong, unique passwords for all your sites and stores them in one safe, convenient location. No more jotting down passwords on notepads or being out of luck because you lost or forgot your password and left the notepad at home. Users can quickly access their passwords by entering one master password—one of your choosing and that only you know—on any device the app is installed (smartphone, tablet or computer). Simply log in to the app with your master password and you have access to all of your passwords. It’s that easy!
The app also lets you save other important information users prefer to keep secure, like bank accounts, credit cards, passports, private notes, and more. Best of all, your information is safe even if your device is lost or stolen.
If you’re looking for a free, secure password management solution that saves you time, look no further than 1Password.
Wouldn’t it be great if there was an app that reminded us to pay our bills, alerted us to important emails, kept track of travel arrangements, provided us with driving directions for an appointment and then suggested we pick up flowers for our anniversary on the way home? Thankfully, there is an app that does all of that, and it’s called EasilyDo.
EasilyDo is like having a super-smart personal assistant inside your smartphone. The app does a little bit of everything to keep your day organized and help you stay on track while saving you valuable time. You simply tell the app what areas of your daily routine you want help with, and the app sends you personalized notifications for managing almost every part of it.
The app’s capabilities span all areas of life, from automatically saving a new contact’s information from an email into your Contacts app to letting you compose “Happy Valentine’s Day” texts in advance, so you’re not scrambling to send them all the day of. It will alert you to important daily events, like appointments and anniversaries, and help you wish your Facebook friends a happy birthday so you don’t forget to. The app even calculates all the precious seconds you’ve saved by using EasilyDo.
